Spotted on a DT175 swingarm yesterday:



Carries two spare plugs in just about the dirtiest place on an off-road bike. Cool old accessory.

Rubber side down!

The 'Hippy Killer'  :rolleyes: (lame name) one is an accurate copy.  I think the originals were from Preston Petty.  :umm:

I've seen those before. In the 70's.  They can be mounted elsewhere.
